     Sea captain John Sanders made numerous voyages to and from New England and the mother country.  In 1623 he was instrumental in bringing settlers who founded the Weymouth Colony.  It failed and he went back to England.  Eventually in 1628 his eldest son, also named John Sanders, was successful in establishing the Weymouth Colony.  In 1635 Captain John Sanders made New England his home while continuing his voyages back and forth across the Atlantic.  Some time during the preceding years, his wife, Ales (Alice)  died, and he married, Hester Rolfe, the daughter of John Rolfe.  John Rolfe being the founder of Jamestowne in the Virginia Colony in 1609.  Hester may have been his third wife.  

     Capt. John Sanders and Hester Rolfe had nine children, but it is the descendants of the son, John Sanders, who are chronicled in this book.  Capt. John's ancestors and his children with his earlier wife, or wives, are also listed.  It is the family of John Sanders who married Esther Chapman at Haverhill, N.H. in 1779, and later moved to Fort Covington, N.Y., that receives the most attention.

     Allied families discussed in varying degrees of detail are: Grafton, Page, Marsh, Green, Rowell, Morrill, Clement, Colby, Sargent, and Ambrose.
